Your iPhone is an extension of you, so it’s no wonder many iPhone owners want a cool, unique case that expresses their personal style. If you’re bored with plain black cases, we’ve rounded up colorful, creative cases that help you protect your iPhone in style. Whether you’re looking for a wallet case, a patterned case, or a case with some kind of unique material, we’ve curated a list of cool iPhone 7 cases that well definitely get you noticed. Please note that some of the images below are placeholder images, and may not feature the iPhone 7 in the case. Since the iPhone 7 is so new, not all retailers have had a chance to update their product images. Rest assured, all of the case below will fit the iPhone 7, and accommodate the new camera on the rear of the device.
1. iSPECLE Textured iPhone 7 Case
Looking for a case that looks tough? The sharp corners and carbon fiber-inspired pattern make this black case stand out from the competition. Dark blue and white options are also available, or you can opt for a three pack that includes all of the colors at a discount. In addition to looking cool, the textured back makes it easier to keep a firm grip on your device. The case is backed by a 12-month warranty.
Price: $11.99 (37 percent off MSRP)
2. Case-Mate Karat Cell Phone Case for iPhone 7
Want a case that’s got some sparkle and sheen? This unusual iPhone 7 case is made with mother of pearl, alongside sterling silver shards. The result is something that’s perfectly at home in a designer purse. But this case is more than just a pretty face. It’s also tough, having been drop tested to meet MIL-STD-810G standards. Combine that toughness with a lifetime warranty, and you have a case that you can feel confident dropping $50 on. Rose gold and gold versions of this case are also available, but we think the mother of pearl is really unique. We’ve seen lots of glittery gold cases, but no other mother of pearl cases, so opt for MOP if you want a case that’s really unique.
3. Vena Harmony iPhone 7 Case
If you’re like me, you were pumped to see the jet black variant of the iPhone 7 revealed at the Apple Keynote, and then immediately disappointed when you heard that the jet black version of the phone is more prone to scratching than the other colors. This creative phone case has a unique back panel that gives you the textured grip you want from a protective case, but with a wide curve that also lets you show off the black of your phone (or whatever color you opted for).
If you’re looking for a case that gives you protection, while still displaying the color of your iPhone 7, this is a nice option that gives you the best of both worlds. If black isn’t your favorite color, you can also opt for teal, navy blue, or coral pink.
4. OtterBox DEFENDER SERIES ‘Plum Arabesque’ Case for iPhone 7
OtterBox cases are built tough, but sometimes the ones you find in stores around the launch of a new device are sort of boring. This colorful case is anything but. We love the design, but we also appreciate the three-layer protective case, with a built-in screen protector. Love the protective design of OtterBox cases, but dislike this pattern?

5. Belk Slim Wood Phone 7 Case
Wood cases always draw the eye. There’s just something interesting about choosing to wrap a metal phone in a wooden case. Billed as the thinnest and lightest wood bumper case for the iPhone, the wood veneer is a mere 0.5mm thick. The wood is paired with rubber, to add to impact resistance and make the case easier to slip on over your phone. We’re big fans of the birch wood finish above, but you can also find this case in more familiar wood styles like walnut, cherry, or oak. There’s also a teak version, which is another unique option for those who want a woodgrain case that stands out from similar cases.

6. Auroralove White Fuzzy iPhone 7 Case with Rhinestone Camera Cutout
As the weather gets colder, you might like snuggling your fingers into this furry iPhone case. While it’s definitely not a style for everyone, this is a great option for people who like cute and unusual cases. There are a large number of colors to choose from, so you can pick the color that best expresses your personality. While the white is really nice, we have a feeling it will start to look dingy over time. That being said, these cases can be washed with soap and water, and then fluffed back to their original look with a hairdryer.
7. GMYLE Black Water Marble iPhone 7 Case
This unusual case looks like a marble floor, or perhaps like an oil spill. This swirling, unusual design is unlike what most other people around you will be using to protect their smartphone. This slim case doesn’t add much bulk to your device, and the colors are designed to resist fading over time. There are six other patterns and colors to choose from, so check them all out and find the marble look that speaks to you.
Price: $6.98 (42 percent off MSRP)
8. Sonix SUSHI Cell Phone Case for iPhone 7
If sushi is your favorite food, this is a great iPhone 7 case for you. In addition to having cute images of sushi all over the back, this case has a couple of features designed to make sure the case lasts. For instance, this style of case boasts an anti-scratch UV coating to protect against scrapes, dings, and fading. Button covers help to protect points of ingress, and the case has been drop tested to withstand short drops.
9. Agent18 ‘Preppy’ iPhone 7 Case
This cool case has a pretty look. We like the use of color blocking and gradient stripes to create a case with lots of cool design elements. However, this case may not be to all tastes. If you want to see more options, you can browse more Agent18 iPhone 7 cases here.
Price: $19.96 (5 percent off MSRP)
10. Rokform Predator iPhone 7 Case
This unique case is made from durable, lightweight aluminum. The design protects the corners and the screen, which are the most vulnerable parts of a smartphone. If you dislike having a bulky case, or simply want to enjoy the lines and color of your phone, this might be the best case style for you.
This case also includes a universal magnetic car mount. This is a great perk for people who like to use their phone while in the car. And while Apple has stated in the past that magnetic iPhone accessories can interfere with phone features like NFC and optical image stabilization, those are features you’re less likely to be using while driving, so we think this is a fine accessory to use with your iPhone 7 while you are in the car.
